Meet Yesenia Figueroa


RISD HR is excited to introduce the newest member of our team—Talent Acquisition Partner Yesenia Figueroa! Yesenia joined us on January 10th after serving for 12 years in the U.S. Army. During her time in the Army, she worked as a Talent Acquisition Manager and held several other roles within Human Resources.

“I was drawn to RISD because I wanted to be part of a community where self-expression, diversity, and individuality matters,” shared Yesenia. “I look forward to meeting the students, staff, and faculty, and I’m excited to see where this new journey leads.”

Outside of RISD, Yesenia is the Co-Owner of Notes Coffee Co. in Pawtucket, RI, along with her spouse. Notes Coffee Co. is a creative and inclusive space for community, conversations, art, and music.
